The National Wildlife Refuge System in Montana includes national wildlife refuges and wetland management districts, which show on separate maps below. We develop comprehensive conservation plans for all of these areas.

Comprehensive conservation plans (CCPs) for refuges

The below map shows the name and location of each national wildlife refuge (NWR) in Montana. Select the name of a refuge with either a completed plan or plan in progress to go to its plan page, where you can find the plan or information about the planning process. A refuge with a plan not yet started has no plan page.
